Coronavirus (Covid-19) - important information 3 July 2020
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) has lifted its advice against non-essential international travel. This means you can travel to a number of countries from Saturday 4 July.
However, the FCO still advises against travelling to many countries. So check the FCO for the latest advice before you go. If you buy travel insurance and then travel to a country that the FCO advises against visiting, your travel insurance won’t cover you. You won’t be covered for any cancellations either.
Coronavirus is what they call a “known event”. So some insurers may exclude this type of event from the cover they offer you. If in doubt, check the policy wording or contact your chosen insurer before you buy.
However, all policies bought through Confused.com include cover for emergency medical expenses and repatriation - even if you contract Covid-19 abroad. This is so long as you’re not travelling against FCO advice.
